 Mission Statement

The mission of the Department of Music at Georgia Southwestern State University is to provide all students, regardless of ability and major, with the opportunity to experience music in a nurturing environment with the goal of educating the whole person and the creation of a life-long music patron.

Welcome to the Department of Music!

The music program stresses individual attention in presenting the discipline of music. The program is looking for people who enjoy performing and working together to bring out a high level of musicianship. 

Georgia Southwestern State University music professors are friends and mentors. Private instruction in brass, woodwinds, percussion, guitar, piano, and voice is available to all music students. There are several instrumental and vocal groups. All of these activities draw on the musical talents of music majors as well as the general college student. Georgia Southwestern State University students give frequent performances during the year. These range from musical theatre productions, madrigal dinners, cabaret, choirs, concert and jazz bands.

Music scholarships are available to students based on an audition performed for the music faculty.
